Low carb & keto dieting as beneficial for weight loss, finally and thoroughly debunked.

It seems apparent that anti-sugar quackitivists also similarly fear monger over artificial sweeteners and in some cases other plant based sweeteners such as stevia.
There is ample and on going research to support the safety of non-nutritive sweeteners such as aspartame. 

Sugar is not addictive "like drugs are addictive".

Be aware of how much "still sugar, but not regular cane sugar" is often in expensive "sugar free" products. In some cases more so than in the conventional brands they would claim to be "healthier" than.

There is so much nonsense doing the rounds about how "sugar is addictive just like illegal drugs are addictive", usually coming from LCHF cultists. So here's a masterpost of all the information to put that myth to rest once and for all.

Another master post / link dump for you all, this time all about artificial sweeteners and aspartame in particular. It's ironic that many of the people who fear monger over natural sugars also insist that artificial sweeteners must also be avoided.

A master post on the benefits of NOT omitting healthy whole grains from your diet, and my commentary on this disingenuous film.

If you have no targets to work to and you’re not seeing any progress, your total energy intake is some unknown and random amount. Pay attention to this: determining what that random amount might be and subtracting some other arbitrary amount from it in no way resembles a logical, intelligent or scientific method of calculating your sports nutrition requirements.

That isn’t IIFYM, although it does seem to be how a lot of people with the audacity to refer to themselves as a “coach” incompetently go about it much to the detriment of their unfortunate clients.

Brand new on the Official Blog.

For those of you heading into the New Year with a Resolution to achieve something via training and fueling... well, we take a look at what your goal should involve & might include, and we talk about being more concerned with moving in the right direction over the long haul rather than trying to be perfectionists.

The keyword here is TRAJECTORY.

We want to establish habits that take us towards all aspects of our goal condition, and although there'll be some variance in how well we stick to the plan over time, we'll have the big picture in mind and not throw in the towel after minor setbacks.

Check it out and let me know what you think. As usual I think this is a little bit of a different (but better) way of looking at things than you'll see many other places.

You need to establish the habit of meeting at least an adequate total energy and macronutrient provision, via whatever selection of foods makes this the easiest and most enjoyable for you. Preferably, at least periodically you need to push closer to the maximum, optimal end of that usable energy range.
